Paper products are heavier and therefore cost more to ship (and therefore create more emissions) and do not keep hot food hot or cold food cold, and they use more greenhouse gases to produce. Washable items require water and energy (and people – $$$) to clean them. Encouraging your municipality to institute polystyrene recycling is the BEST option. There is more demand for recycled plastics than there is supply. Or – research how your school or company can recycle polystyrene on its own. Non-food-contact polystyrene is particularly valuable. Stores in your area (particularly big box stores) may already be recycling polystyrene and could accept your recycling stream.

Since we know how detrimental it is to our environment and to our health; why doesn’t the EPA just impose a federal ban on all polystyrene products? With proper care; I feel that this would be the best solution. It would indubitably eliminate one hundred percent of all such products.

I send my children to school every morning with their Yoli nutrition drink bottled in a BPA free bottle and is dishwasher safe. We reuse them over and over again. Learn more about these bottles and help save our environment.
